PASSION FOR FOOD
My love for nutrition began to thrive in college. I knew I wanted to go into the medical field but it wasn’t until I took my first nutrition class when everything seemed to click. The dietetics profession is such a fascinating field in the sense that no matter what a person’s background may be, we will always have something in common: food. We celebrate with food, we mourn with food, we catch up with old friends over food, and we heal with food.
"I am a Medical Nutrition Therapist and Certified Diabetes Educator. I work with people of all ages to find balance in nutrition and foods that they love. I meet clients where they are at to make easy, sustainable changes to live a happy, healthy life. I never take a one-size fits all approach and understand that there are many moving parts to everyone’s day. My goal is to help you make food choices easy and fun." -Jill
PASSION FOR LIFE
Physical activity and movement is so important in healing the body and mind and managing your health. I believe in joyful movement and love all things active. I have a passion for sports and grew up playing field hockey where I continued my career as a collegiate athlete and later in club sports. Now, in my spare time, you can find me outside hiking, kayaking, walking, or running. I find that doing activities that I enjoy, help with my overall well-being and connect my mental, emotional, and physical health.
